Godfreys Meat for a Week - August

Our specially designed for busy households - Meat for a Week Service - where you can cook some cuts straight away, keep some in the fridge - or pop some into the freezer for the end of the week.
No need to buy for every single day - just buy for the days you need - be it for Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner or for that Special Occasion

Not every customer has time to visit our shop in their busy lives - and some would like the convenience of all the week’s meat requirements taken care of in one go. 

Avoid the disappointment of the supermarket visit.
So now you can Click and Collect or have Godfreys Premium Quality Meats and Poultry delivered in one box - Nation wide direct to your door - with something new to enjoy every day - without having to resort to the disappointment of the supermarket visit.

It wasn’t really our idea.
It’s what many of our customers already do-and they have grown to rely upon it so much we thought we should share the idea with all of our customers.

Rather than offer pre-chosen quantities and selection we have tried to emulate what many of our customers already do to help them in their busy lives.

We soon realised that many households may have two people in one day, and maybe six the next, so fixed quantities was not such a good idea.

We also realised that different required different meat preferences.

Make your choice easier-and quicker!
So the best choice was to create on our Website a tab for each day of the week showing our customers top preferences for that day so make your choice easier-and quicker!

That way you can work through the days with easy choices and you can also decide what quantities will suit that day.

Your entire Weekly Meat shopping in minutes
Just start on a day and make a choice - add it to your cart - and within a few minutes you will have completed your entire weekly Meat requirements tailored precisely to your personal requirements and taste.

The daily selections naturally reflect the changing seasonal changes each month. 
As we enter August we have updated our Meat for a Week tab on our Web site to reflect what becomes more popular in August and hopefully help make your choices less time consuming and easier.

What’s good to eat this Month
Seasonal food is the time of year when food is at its optimum, either in terms of flavour or harvest. In today's global food market most foods are available all year round but when local seasonal food is available it tends to be fresher and cheaper because there has been less transportation and storage time from farm to fork.
Foods are usually harvested when they are at their peak and typically have the most flavour and nutrients, so eating seasonal food tends to be tastier, healthier and better for the environment.

Time to eat seasonal!
With Summer now in full swing - the first day of August also traditionally marked the beginning of the serious harvest “after Lammas day corn ripens as much by night as by day”

•  Lamb Cutlets with Mint, Chilli and Golden Potatoes  - by Nigella Lawson
If you put your halved Baby Potatoes on to steam before you get started on the Lamb Chops, you can fairly effortlessly rely on a proper meat-and-potato supper in around 20 minutes (plus a little marinading time). Steaming the Potatoes is, for me, an important stipulation: a steamed spud is a sweet spud; more than that, cooked this way, rather than by boiling, the Potatoes are dry when done, which makes them easy to fry to crisp bronzedness.
Preparation time less than 30 mins : Cooking time 10 to 30 mins.
